Before the reservoir was built there were austere and marshy wastelands.
In 1816 the regional border between Tirol and Salzburg was set up. The reservoir is at an altitude of 1400m and is 6km long, 2km wide and 55m deep.
The highest sailing and windsurfing school is located here as well as a boat rental, a bathing beach with children´s playground and BBQ facilities and a homey cafe - restaurant.
The Sailing & Windsurfing school is open in July & August.
Fishing licenses are available at "Seestüberl"
